Our cells are electric: every living function – conscious, unconscious, physical, or mental requires electrical current in order to happen. Muscle activity, nerve function, glandular secretions, thinking, walking, running, pain, healing and regeneration are all electrically driven functions of the body.
- Healthy cells have a charge of -70 millivolts to -120 millivolts (depending upon what part of the body they are in and what they do).
- Loss of cellular electrical charge is the beginning of diminishing performance, aging, illness, and even death.
- Cells with a charge of <20 millivolts are often incapable of performing any useful function and go into survival mode during which they reproduce themselves in their deficient form – a degenerative process that may signal the beginning of cancer.
For patients interested in trying PEMF, one common question is how it will make them feel.
- Professional athlete Igor Olshansky, former defensive end for the San Diego Chargers, shares how he used PEMF after training or practice and that it made him “feel better, more energized.”
- Users of PEMF can feel the magnetic wave of energy entering their body; it seeks out or finds areas of the body with previous injury or issue and the user can feel this entire process.
- Olshansky also explains how PEMF helped alleviate his aches and pains, enabling him to practice proper technique so as not to compromise himself and increase his risk of injury, providing just one more benefit of engaging in PEMF therapy.
What is old is new.
- While you may have not thought a technology from the 1800s could find its way into your practice, PEMF is a great way to benefit your practice. This type of therapy helps to increase patient outcomes by providing pain relief and healing injuries while being relatively low cost to you. Including PEMF therapy in your practice boosts your bottom line while effectively treating your patients.
